The Lift MC405 is the largest and most powerful mini crane to hire in the MAEDA range with many unique features to set it apart from the rest.

Not only does it have a pick and carry facility that is able to hold a load of up to 500kg whilst moving, the MC405 also has excellent reach with a 16.5m standard boom, as well as an optional fly jib attachment which can extend the boom to an impressive 21 metres. Plus, at only 1400mm wide, it will still fit through standard double doors!

The MAEDA 405 also has a searcher hook extension, that allows a fixed hook arm to be fitted at different angles to the very top of the boom, which is great when lifting under overhead canopies or below low roofs.

The 405 is a very powerful spider crane and operates both on electric for indoor use, or on diesel. With its remote control facility, the MC405 can be operated at the point of the load so the operator can be the slinger and see the lift from all angles.
